The Human Element of Email Security: Understanding Behavioral Threats and Social Engineering

Behavioral threats and social engineering attacks target the human psyche rather than exploiting technical vulnerabilities. They rely on psychological manipulation, deception, and exploiting human trust to trick individuals into divulging sensitive information, clicking on malicious links, or taking actions that compromise security. Understanding these tactics and the human behaviors they exploit is key to effectively mitigating email security risks.
